Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-Chan (撲殺天使ドクロちゃん Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan?) is a Japanese light novel series written by Masaki Okayu and illustrated by Torishimo. It centers on a young boy and an angel from the future who constantly gets him into trouble and kills him violently and repeatedly with a kanabō, only to resurrect him seconds later. The novels were first serialized in the Dengeki hp magazine published by MediaWorks. Later, a manga version was created, written and illustrated by Mitsuna Ouse serialized in Dengeki Comic Gao!. Finally, an anime version was adapted and aired in Japan between March and September 2005. A second anime series aired between August and November 2007.[1] In late 2005, a PlayStation 2 game titled Game ni Natta yo! Dokuro-chan: Kenkō Shindan Daisakusen was released in Japan.

Plot

Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan tells the story of Sakura Kusakabe, a second-year junior high school student who, twenty years in the future, while attempting to create a "Pedophile's World" forces all women to stop aging after the age of twelve, offends God by the side effect of having created immortality. Dokuro Mitsukai, a member of an order of angel assassins that are called Rurutie, has been sent from the future to kill him. Believing that Sakura can be redeemed, Dokuro decides instead to keep Sakura so occupied that he can never develop the immortality technology. Due to her impulsive nature and super-human strength however, she frequently kills him with her gigantic spiked kanabō (club), Excalibolg, on a moment's impulse, but returns him to life moments later with angelic power. Sabato, another assassin of the Rurutie order who uses her feminine wiles to do her job, is dispatched to complete Dokuro's original mission: Sakura's assassination.

Characters

Sakura Kusakabe (草壁桜 Kusakabe Sakura?)
Voiced by: Reiko Takagi
Sakura is a second year junior high school student whose life changed the day the "Bludgeoning Angel" Dokuro-chan appeared. From that day on, he went from the life of a normal boy to one filled with bloody clubbings by said angel. In the future, Sakura is apparently destined to create a technology that stops girls from aging after they reach the age of twelve years, which has led to Sakura gaining a reputation as a pedophile around his school (though this is only because the male population are jealous of him having two heart-breakingly beautiful angels attracted to him). While not perverted by nature, Sakura still manages to get into tricky situations with Dokuro and later her sister. He has a crush on his classmate and friend Shizuki Minakami, though he is too afraid to tell her, but soon he develops feelings for Dokuro despite the way she treats him.
Dokuro Mitsukai (三塚井ドクロ Mitsukai Dokuro?)
Voiced by: Saeko Chiba
Dokuro is a cute angelic assassin of Rurutie, a committee of angels protecting the domain of God, from the future brought back through time to kill Sakura Kusakabe, but instead tries to save him. Mostly, she is just like any other young girl but where other girls might shout or slap to express their displeasure, Dokuro draws her magical spiked kanabō "Excalibolg" and brutally clubs her victim to death with it (the gag is the only real victim of the clubbing is Sakura). "Excalibolg" is likely a reference to the legendary weapons Excalibur and Caladbolg. She has super-human strength and endurance (because of this she often underestimates her own strength and harms Sakura), and is also capable of bringing someone back to life with Excalibolg by chanting Pipiru piru piru pipiru pi (the refrain of the theme song in the opening credits). She also can, and does, use her magic to cause humans to transform into animals, or to apparently completely erase them from existence, mainly as an excuse to pair up with Sakura. When she is not brutally killing Sakura she teases him mercilessly, mostly using sexual innuendo and lifting her skirt or shirt. She is in love with Sakura and hints that they have kissed (though Sakura vehemently denies this). Eventually, she founds a school club dedicated to watching wood glue dry, after gaining a teacher's approval using some sort of torture involving "the nerves of your teeth". She promptly coerces Sakura into becoming its second member (by sticking him onto a board and leaving him there until he joins) and has stated her desire to achieve the national championship in this particular 'sport'. As of the second season, Dokuro has become more "comfortable" with Sakura seeing her nude, from stripping in front of him and snuggling up to him while both of them were naked.
Sabato Mihashigo (三橋檎サバト Mihashigo Sabato?)
Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya
Sabato is another angel sent from the future to assassinate Sakura before he can create his "Pedophile's World". Also with super-human strength, Sabato has ram horns on her head. After she was defeated, she began to live in a small cardboard box under a bridge; her living allowance is funded from an unknown source. Her weapon of choice is a deadly shock-baton called Durandal which according to Sabato can "char blue whales in the blink of an eye." "Durandal" is most likely a reference to Durendal, the sword of Charlemagne's paladin Roland. She frequently uses the Japanese copula "desu" to end her phrases.
Zansu (ザンス?)
Voiced by: Nobuo Tobita
Zansu is yet another angel from the future who has accompanied Dokuro in the attempt to save Sakura's life. He has a very odd appearance, looking more like a biker gang member than an angel. He is unfortunately revealed to have some perverted tendencies. Every sentence Zansu says ends in "Zansu". He is frequently nude in the second series.
Zakuro Mitsukai (三塚井ザクロ Mitsukai Zakuro?)
Voiced by: Akeno Watanabe
Zakuro is Dokuro's younger nine-year-old angel sister, though she looks significantly older, and has a far larger bust size than her older sister. She has the super-human powers of most angels and wears a dress modeled after a naval officer's uniform, as well as an eyepatch on her left eye, for unknown reasons and is unusually polite, addressing people with the formal "-san" suffix after their names as opposed to the informal "-kun" or "-chan". Calm and soft-spoken, she is quite proficient in battle. Her weapon is a wet towel named "Eckilsax" which can split into two or more for close combat, as well as stretching itself to bind the opponent. In the second anime series, she moves in with Sakura and Dokuro. She seems to get on well with Sakura and appears to have developed a crush on him, although she sometimes suggests that Dokuro kill Sakura only to realize what she's saying and apologize but it is ususally too late by then.
Shizuki Minakami (水上静希 Minakami Shizuki?)
Voiced by: Ayako Kawasumi
Shizuki is one of Sakura's good friends, and is also one of his classmates. She hangs out with Sakura most of the time, and is one of the more normal characters in the series as she never gets excited or otherwise when odd things begin to happen. Shizuki seems to have some feelings for Sakura. She is noteworthy among her classmates for being the only one who does not hold Sakura in contempt and believes him to be a good person.

Anime

The first season of the Dokuro-chan anime first aired in Japan on March 12, 2005 and contained eight episodes in length. Each of the eight episodes is less than 15 minutes in duration, though they were aired in pairs which totaled four parts that were each 25 minutes in length including the opening and ending songs. The second season of Dokuro-chan anime first aired on August 11, 2007, with a DVD box set release date of August 24, 2007. The second season ran for four episodes, and is released in two parts consisting of two episodes each. In the TV airings, some of the more violent or dubious scenes are replaced with an image of a beach and one of the students that were transformed into animals, leaving just the audio. New changes were made with the second season, such as Dokuro's hair color changing to blue, Zakuro moving in with them both, the only appearance of Sabatos mother, and the animation being slightly different from the first season.

Two pieces of theme music were used for both anime seasons; one opening theme and one ending theme each. The first season's opening theme is "Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan", and the ending theme is "Survive", both sung by Saeko Chiba. The second season's opening theme is "Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan (2007)", and the ending theme is "Bokusatsu Ondo de Dokuro-chan", again both by Saeko Chiba.

The series is licensed as Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan, translating the "Bokusatsu Tenshi" from the title as "Bludgeoning Angel".

Game ni Natta yo! Dokuro-chan ~ Kenkou Shindan Daisakusen.

Video game

In late 2005, a video game based on the series entitled 'Game ni Natta yo! Dokuro-chan: Kenkō Shindan Daisakusen (ゲームになったよ!ドクロちゃん〜健康診断大作戦〜?, lit. It's a Game Now! Dokuro-chan ~ Great Health Diagnosis Strategy) was released in Japan. The game was given a 18+ rating from CERO, because of highly disturbing violence and nudity. The game was re-rated as "D" (17+) on their website since this game was released while the "D" rating was not created. In the game, Sakura meets a new angel named Benomu. The game is set up as a visual novel where the player has to pick which opinions to go with. This game features the affection system, where the main character Sakura has to spend time with one of the six girls to maximize their heart meter and get the good ending for that character. Even though this game features voices, the minor characters still remains un-voiced, which results in only viewing text written on the screen while the character is silent. "Zansu" is one example. The voiced characters only include: Sakura, Zakuro, Dokuro, Benomu, Sabato and Shizuki.

There are videos in the game, but are recycled from the TV anime. The extremely violent scenes are censored by only showing a white screen with blood splatting all over it. However, the CG is all new and the game has over 90+ pictures. There are five mini-games added together in the game. Once the games are completed, the players gets a CG from the character of the player's choice. A challenge mode in the mini-game section is opened afterwards, where the player has to score 100 points on those five games to be able to make available a last chapter where Sakura dreams where all girls turn twelve-years-old; this chapter includes the remaining CGs of the characters.

Dokuro also appears as a playable character in the game, Dengeki Gakuen RPG: Cross of Venus.
